FA Cup
by kingslandstand1 at 18:42 21 Apr 2024

Just watching that game, and the tvvats ith the Prem and even FA dare I say are trying to kill it for the lower league teams

Fk it, all lower league teams boycott the final on TV that's bound to make them change their minds

(though tbf, I'd probably avoid the bore that it will be anyway )

Play offs
by kingslandstand1 at 14:45 21 Apr 2024

So who do we want, Norwich or Baggies? We're almost certainly gonna get 4th spot now after yesterday's catastrophe, which it was, so we will at east have the advantage of home leg 2nd but who to play?

We've done the double over West Brom, and aggregate 5-5 with Norwich (1-4, 4-1!) who may be on a slightly better run right now? Both will bring their full allocation down but not a lot between them? Both are yo-yo clubs whereas we've only had the one play off though not sure if that makes a difference. But if I had to choose, think I'd rather play Canaries just on gut feeling that West Brom are a bigger club (or are they??)

So Effing P!ssed Off!!
by Southamptonfan at 21:46 20 Apr 2024

Just got back, what a ridiculous result against Cardiff reserves. Just spent £160 on Leeds tickets for myself and family members because the team gave us hope with 3 home wins, we didn't want to miss possible celebrations of promotion at Elland Road, then they f@cking lose to Cardiff reserves and miss about 10 open goals! Are they just teasing us. I wouldn't have bothered spending all that money for Leeds for a meaningless game and saved it for the play offs. If they were going to not turn up today, and players who have played in the PL were going to miss open goals from 2 yards, why did they bother beating Watford in the 99th minute? Why didn't they settle for a play off place a few games ago and save us a whole lot of money? Why give us all hope, to f@ck up yet again? We didn't even get out of 2nd gear today. So soft, so lame, no aggressive play.

I've now got to go to Leeds, probably watch all their fans celebrate promotion in our faces and then spend a whole load of more money on play off tickets and then a possible day at Wembley. When we then probably f@ck it up anyway, they will then want another £600 each for season tickets, unless I move to the Northam.

Cue all the blame on RM, and he has to take his fair share of the blame but honestly can professional players not just tap the ball into an empty net in a big game against Cardiff's reserves?

Yours Sincerely

Thoroughly P!ssed Off Southamptonfan.

This just about sums us up completely
He should have been subbed off for game management earlier, Wussell didn’t do that, we
Lose, Stuart gets injured and we lose our most creative player for the remainder of the season when we need our best makers AND he may never play for us again

3 reasons why we will not get promoted
by grumpy at 17:45 20 Apr 2024

1. We don’t have a striker who can score easy chances.
2. We don’t have a good enough Goalkeeper.
3. We have a manager with no plan B.

Disgrace
by saint22 at 17:29 20 Apr 2024

That’s what that was today
Failure to convert chances and kill them off AGAIN
Our managers inability to MANAGE the game and change our tactics
We invite pressure again late in second half and concede two poor goals AGAIN
How can the same things happen week in week out??
Most important game of the season and we failed
Not looking forward to Tuesday with Vardys lot on a high
And no Stuey now

Utterly pathetic management as automatic promotion thrown away.
by saintmark1976 at 17:29 20 Apr 2024

Despite 62% possession whilst playing tippy tappy, sideways and backwards football we managed to lose today to a Cardiff team decimated by injuries, without their two best strikers and fielding a bunch of school kids.

Once again our idiot manager couldn’t get his players to defend a lead and made reactive rather than proactive substitutions. He’s done the same all season long and has learned nothing.

When are the owners going to realise that Russell Martin is part of the problem rather than the solution? Having said that I don’t hold out much hope given that for their part this week they have managed to upset a large proportion of season ticket holders with a ridiculous plan to install safe standing next season.

Saints should Keep RM whether we get Promoted or Not
by SaintEPW at 13:26 20 Apr 2024

For this who are unhappy that RM has a clear method of play .....and who feel we should sack our Manager

Good article on the eight relegation candidates in the Championship ....the common factor that links them all - They sacked managers repeatedly...and have developed no method of play ....

" Eight teams are fighting to avoid two relegation spots with short-term approaches holding them back............... What they have in common is the use of the manager conveyor belt. Few have found any degree of philosophy or style, instead overhauling squads to suit the latest dugout dweller, leaving them gasping for air. "

The bottom nine clubs have had 24 managers between them – give or take a caretaker or two – and are reaping what they sowed....................long-term planning is key in football and clubs such as Luton and Nottingham Forest have shown the way out of the Championship "

Club Attitude to Fans
by Berber at 12:54 20 Apr 2024

I have just had a reminder from Faceache, 4 years ago, at the beginning of Covid, the club was calling all over 65s to make sure they were OK. I can’t imagine that happening now. Not after the way they ignored the recent passing of a significant player for the club.

Cardiff City supposed injury crisis. Can we not........
by A1079 at 12:50 19 Apr 2024

........have any of that attitude that all we have to do is turn up because the opposition have an alleged injury crisis.

I have lost count over the years of opposition teams that are supposedly struggling to put together a team to play due to an injury crisis only for us to lose 1-0. I don't want us to care who is playing for Cardiff we have to play to win and win well if possible irrespective of who is in their squad.

Bazunu out 10 months min. Loan keeper?
by saints__fan__73 at 09:54 19 Apr 2024

Can we bring in a loan keeper for the rest of the season?

We've only two fit senior keeper so if one was injured we couldn't put one on the bench. Does this mean we're allowed a loan? I don't think league rules would force us to use a kid from the academy?
